Has anyone installed a larger oil filter? I was looking and there is plenty of room. I thought the larger filter would help keep the oil alittle cooler for longer life. If anyone knows what the number of a larger filter would be.

Here ya go...
Make,Stock size,Oversize
  1. Amsoil, EA057, EA034
  2. Fram, PH3614, PH3600
  3. K&N, HP-1002, HP-2009
  4. Mobil, M1-102, M1-209
  5. Mopar, L-335, ???
  6. NAPA, 1348, 1516
  7. PureOne, PL10241, PL20195
  8. Purolator, L10241, L20195
  9. Wix, 51348, 51516

Keep in mind that the bypass spring rates in the oversize filters may or may not be the same as the stock filter. Use them at your own risk.

I use the K&N large one. Running a larger (or high flow filter) means that you should run less oil pressure at the pump because you have less pressure drop after the filter.

Having more oil effectively increases the capacity of the oil to soak up heat, albeit only slightly.

You obviously also have a larger filter area, which aids in filtering, especially important if you want to run longer than recommended change intervals.

That said, there is absolutely nothing wrong with with running the smaller stock filter size. Most probably more important is running a quality filter.

I was going to use the larger Mobil 1 oil filter until I called Mobil 1's oil filter hot line (800 882-0890). There is enough differences between the two filters, "Bypass springs rates" being one of them. Also the filters do not cross reference each other as a alternate.

Personally, I would choose the a good quality synthetic filter that cross references to the Jeep.

larger oil filter

Thanks for the info you sure gave me something to think about-bypass ratings. I may just stick with the stock unit. I have used larger filters on my motorhome and thought it helped out. But now I am not sure for the Jeep. Thanks again for your responses.
